Philips Lighting has announced that it will supply interconnected LED based lighting, and controls technology for the new Tappan Zee Bridge that
is currently under construction in New York's Hudson River Valley (seen in the nearby computer rendered illustration). Called the New NY Bridge
project, the new Tappan Zee will have 419-ft towers lit by Philips Color Kinetics architectural LED lighting products and a road surface lit by Road
View solid-state lighting (SSL) luminaires.
The Tappan Zee Bridge, located north of Manhattan, is part of the New York State Thruway and connects South Nyack and Tarrytown across the
Hudson River. The existing cantilever bridge will be replaced by an iconic suspended, cable-stayed structure that at 3.1 miles long is the largest
bridge construction project in the New York State history. Towers will reach 419-ft heights. The center span will be finished in 2016, with the bridge
opening planned for 2018.
Philips is working with the New York State Thruway Authority and Tappan Zee Constructors on the architectural LED lighting project. The striking new
bridge will bring needed traffic relief along with state-of-the-art technology from construction techniques to lighting.
